Sex discrimination and part-timers: Part-timer can pursue fresh Article 119 claim

This report relates to 1 case(s)

In Methilhill Bowling Club v Hunter the EAT holds that a part-time employee, whose unfair dismissal complaint originally failed because she did not have the five years' service then necessary under the Employment Protection (Consolidation) Act 1978 for an employee working between eight and 16 hours per week, can pursue a fresh unfair dismissal claim based on Article 119 of the Treaty of Rome.

Ms Hunter was a part-time employee of Methilhill Bowling Club from May 1990 until 3 April 1993, when she was dismissed for alleged misconduct.
